Who is the best magician on TV?” is an obvious one, right? Well, it turns out it’s a real-life story of a real-life incident at the Magic Castle, which was also an entertainment center and movie theater.
In January 2008, an 18-year-old girl from New Hampshire got a ticket to Magic Castle. While the school was on vacation, she went there and found a magic trick she “can’t get out of her head,” according to the Hartford Courant. That was the day she and her 14-year-old brother were watching the movie “Hocus Pocus” and watching the Wizard of Oz at the same time. The sisters were both impressed with the performance by the wizard.
One of the sisters asked the magician for some tips, and he said she should try the butterfly trick. The magic butterfly (or butterfly with a magic wand) can be performed by one person. The magic wand must be pulled back with one hand to hit the butterfly.
But a little more effort required. The trick, performed by a 15-year-old girl from New York, needed the help of a two-foot-long piece of wood, several coats of glue, and some special light to light the butterfly. The girl and her sister performed the butterfly trick for two hours, with the help of a couple of neighbors. Her parents were also at the movie. When she finished the job, she got some stickers, a hat, an American flag, and a photo of the butterfly. The girl is one of the best performers in New England, and her parents are delighted they didn’t see that trick going on during their vacation.
Now, the magic trick is being performed at every event at Magic Castle, which also features magic trick contests and movies by American magician Sam Simon. (Watch for them at 10:45, 11:45, and 12:45.) The school told the Courant that some parents have complained about the event being advertised on MTV.
The principal of Magic Castle has said the school wishes the girl had performed the trick at the same time. His response: “I’m happy she did it in the end, because I think she should. I think she got her lesson.”
